The Stafford Municipal District plans to unveil a $26 million, 950-student facility next month.

The Stafford (Texas) Municipal School District is poised to open a new middle school next month

The school building, as well as a facility for district administration, are being constructed as part of a $62 million bond proposal that voters approved in November 2017.

“We are thrilled with our new space," says Superintendent Robert Bostic. "We can’t wait for staff, students and the community to see the final result and enjoy the renovations of our complex in person one day soon,”

The $26 million middle school is replacing a facility build in 1983. The three-story, 139,360-square-foot building will accommodate 950 students in grades 6 to 8. 

It has 21st-century classrooms, science laboratories, robotics, engineering and computer labs, band and art rooms, fitness room, library, two gymnasiums and a cafetorium.

The two-story, 26,362-square-foot administrative building has office areas, training and conferences rooms, and a board room for meetings.

The $6.9 million facility includes a district memorabilia area that will have a three-dimensional model of the complex.

The manager for the bond program is Lockwood Andrews & Newnam. The architect for both buildings is AutoArch Architects and the builder is Drymalla Construction.
